Gents- I agree that state law can be more stringent than Federal law- in most cases. This is NOT one of those cases. The section of the US Code I posted trumps state law- specifically states that. IF possession of a given weapon is legal at your point of origin AND at your destination, AND the weapon is unloaded, cased, and in a locked trunk, you may LEGALLY transport it thru another state. Read the section of Title 18 again- the first sentence. And true- local LEOs do not necessarily know the law.
